    Hot Topics in HR

    Presented by Alice Kilborn, JD, PHR

    This presentation is pending 1.5 HRCI credit hours

    Join us for an informative, fast-paced presentation by SHRM NM State Legislative Director and attorney, Alice Kilborn.

    Some of the topics to be included:
    • Marijuana - Medicinal and what if I was on vacation in CO?
    • At-will employment language in light of the National Labor Relations Board's American Red Cross ruling
    • Worker centers - The hot topic employers should be talking about but aren't
      • FlashMob against WalMart during business hours -
      • Protest in McDonald's stores during lunch
        • Keep in mind: None of the people protesting work for either WalMart or McDonald's; they are paid and often bused in from other cities
        • Protesters are paid by union-funded organizations, but do not have to abide by union laws and regulations.
    • "The Fight for Fifteen" and other minimum wage initiatives in NM and DC
    • Workplace Flexibility is not a fad
    • DOL proposed rule to amend 541 overtime regulations - New salary basis of $47,320 annually?!
